There's also the fact that the game was never released in Japan (all of it's popularity stems from youtube videos of the emulated game), and in the US, it was an unlicensed cartridge.

GCCX obviously have a pretty nice relationship with Nintendo, and I have no clue what kind of reaction they'd get, if they showcased an unlicensed game. I think they showed a ROM-hacked version of Gradius once, and had to blur out the entire screen while Arino was playing it?

When he went to Korea he got an unlicensed game and a couple of bootlegs. They showed those on the screen.

It would appear some sadist has released an English translation of Takeshi's Challenge.

Those cases are cool. You create the labels covers yourself? It's hard to get a sense of scale when there is nothing else in the picture but they look like they are VHS cases?

They certainly don't look like the original cardboard boxes.

Little different than what he's got, but Universal Video Game Cases and The Cover Project makes for an enjoyable experience.

That sample clip is way better than the dubbed Kotak episodes, definitely. The announcer sounds better, translation's drat good...but what did they do to the King?

It's the prince, they change it up every once in a while. There's the King, Queen, Prince, Evil King and Evil Queen. Oh the the Ghost Samurai, there's probably another one.

Speaking of retro game collecting, I bought Chrono Trigger sealed over Winter break for 2,000 yen, around 26 USD I believe. This weekend I went into a recently opened Book Off and found it, in a box in pretty good condition for 105 yen, along with Shin Megami Tensei 1 for the same price. I bought both, so now I've got two copies of the drat game. They also had Ghosts and Gobins for 500 yen, a full thousand less than most other places selling it.

Let this be a lesson: Always hunt for retro games in stores not dedicated to them first. And if there's another retro game store somewhat close to a Super Potato, for the love of god check the other one first! I learned my lesson on that one, thankfully.

It also helps that the Japanese retro market isn't as rabid as America.

As the seeder I can see 38 people out there off of me so I know that it's working but it is going to be slow going until there's a few more full seeds out there.

It is using a UDP tracker rather than HTTP but as far as I know that shouldn't be a problem...

No clue, I have no tracker info, no peer listing. It's like the torrent doesn't exist. Even if slow I should be getting bits and pieces from other people.

What client are you using? Are you behind a firewall? Do you have proper ports open? Should work over DHT even if you can't connect the tracker for any reason.

uTorrent 3.0 Build 26473
uPnP is on letting me through my home LAN, I use this client for other torrents.
DHT is not turned on as it screws up things for me on private trackers.

makere posted:

Can you see the torrent having the tracker at all? Try adding the tracker manually udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80, or maybe opening that magnet link I fixed. Private torrents should have a flag that disables DHT per torrent, so enabling DHT should be safe.

You could always just install another client to download the file using DHT, if everything else fails.

Ran a linux version of utorrent on my NAS and that's working. I have no idea what's different. DHT is disabled on that as well.

Edit: Well, finished and seeding. So there's that. Whatever.

The magic of EMS. It's great most of the time, but pricey as hell if you're getting stuff piecemeal. I try to get moderately sized orders to offset the shipping costs. But yeah, they are fast, even faster if you live in California as I do.

Have any of you guys thought about doing a GCCX styled show/event/thing of your own?


I'm asking because a group of friends of mine all really love GCCX (and the work that you amazing people in this thread do), and one of them has decided he's going to do his own GCCX for all of us every Friday night. He'll play an NES game we vote on and play for 6 hours, and if he can't beat it we decide if he fails or can continue next week. His first game will be Mike Tyson's Punch Out this week, and we're planning on doing stuff like having an AD for the episode who can play in place of him if he gets stuck, as the ADs on GameCenter do, by playing the save state. We all meet up and do stuff on Livestream and can't meet in person, so it works pretty well to be able to send a save file and just switch streamers.

We're all pretty excited, and he's even planning on doing a Tamage segment at a local mall arcade eventually, and other sorts of specials he can do in a reasonable amount of time, considering we don't have all the time in the world to do these sorts of things.

So, if any of you guys have done this sort of thing before, how did it go? We have high hopes, but there's always the chance he could get burnt out or it's just not interesting.

Funny story, I own gooncentercx.com/net.

Not really a funny story. There is nothing there. I had an idea, but life happened.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who hopes we get more visual novels (or sound novels or whatever they're calling them) in the future because Sickle Weasel was totally awesome.

I only regret that Arino never once claimed to be the killer himself. I wanted to see what happened real bad

He wouldn't get any points with Mari obviously if he did that...

Also, I liked this episode because since the challenge was done at night, they also did the tamage at night too!

I'm 200% sure they're ants -- while Japanese depictions of African tribes aren't exactly PC, they don't make them look like little bogeymen with tiny stick legs and no facial features. The standard racially insensitive depiction is big white lips and grass skirt.



^ One of the endings from Child-Rearing Quiz My Angel, which Arino doesn't get unfortunately.



^ Bibinba, long-forgotten Sanrio characters I remember from when I was a kid. I bet the company wants to sweep them under the rug now.
